Finding a hotel in Val d'Isère at the last minute is pretty hard; finding an affordable one is almost impossible. And yet here's l'Avancher, a very nice small hotel with super-friendly staff, nice and super-clean rooms, great breakfast every morning and a good restaurant!! There's also a sauna if you're into that type of thing; I didn't try it but... More

One of the few genuine independent hotel's left in Val D'Isere with old school mountain spirit and welcome. Great value and personal service. If you are looking for Val D'Isere glitz this is not for you. If you are looking to enjoy the wonderful village and amazing skiing in a warm and welcoming atmosphere stay here.

We had a great time at this very quaint, friendly, quite centrally located hotel. All the staff are friendly, the rooms are small but you get everything you require. Ski in ski out is maybe not for a beginner, it's good fun though and worth the slight challenge! We'll definitely visit again!

As a regular in Val d'Isere I used all forms of lodging. L'Avancher is my favourite if you do not want to break the bank. The staff is the most service minded I have met, more so even than at the luxury Scott Dunn chalet's. They really make the place. The restaurant serves great raclette and fondue. I highly recommend... More

I have been coming here with friends and family for over 5 years. I come at least once a year and have never been disappointed. Small friendly and great value for money the staff cannot do enough for you. I came here originally on the strength of a trip advisor review and was not disappointed.

Woody Allen famously said that half of work was just showing up. Not in the case of this agile management. Not only is the food great, price fair, the hotel tastefully redesigned but the staff is eager to serve. Highly recommended.

I have stayed at the L'Avancher for a number of years now and can not recommend it highly enough, It is in a great location and really good value for money in Val'D'Isere. The rooms are comfortable and clean and warm, and for a Skiing holiday where you spend little time in the room it is perfect. More importantly the... More

My friend and I spent a very pleasant three week stay at this hotel. We were there to ski and that we did almost every day. There is a shuttle bus stop across the road making for very quick access to the slopes every morning. The return in the afternoon depends on where you finish skiing with the shuttle coming... More

I choose Hotel L'Avancher based on price value and the very favorable reviews on trip advisor. I was not disappointed. I wanted to stay someplace that was comfortable and quiet, as I was in Val D'isere to ski, not party till dawn, and didn't want to be subjected to noisy neighbors or loud people in the street. The hotel is... More
